OS10 overview

A couple weeks ago when Silicon Valley-based Darius Goodall and Cliff Wichmann made the pilgrimage out to Austin I grabbed some time with them to learn about the recently announced OS 10.  Darius heads up the DevOps and tech partner ecosystem in Dell’s networking group while Cliff is the software architect for OS 10.

Take a listen as they take us through the new OS and where it’s going.

Darius and Cliff Cover

  • Dell disaggregated the switch hardware from the software a couple of years ago and is now disaggregating the software.
  • Think of the switch as a Debian-based server with a bunch of ethernet ports.
  • It will allow you to orchestrate, automate, and integrate Linux-based apps into your switching environment.

Timeline

March – Base version coming out in a DevOps friendly server environment.

June/July – Premium applications will be released, which will be the switching packages to use on top of the Linux base+ a fancy routing suite (if you want to get going beforehand you can use Quagga on top of the base).
